Question description

Unit 9 Assignment

Using the referral case study you chose as the emphasis of the Unit 5 Assignment,                    develop and outline a comprehensive Functional Behavioral Assessment Report. The                    specific objective of your Functional Behavioral Assessment Report is to                    demonstrate synthesis of the course material related to FBA’s as they have been                    presented in the course. The FBA Report should be specifically related to the                    case study that you chose to cover for the Unit 5 Assignment. Here are those                    case scenarios as they were presented for that project:

  1. A third grade student in a public elementary school has been referred                                for behavior problems continuously for the past three months. This                                student is demonstrating consistently disruptive behaviors in this                                classroom and in other settings within the school (lunch, recess,                                specials, etc.). Disruptive behaviors have been termed “aggressive”                                 and “non-compliant” by school staff.

  2. The parents of a four-year-old have asked for help in “getting                                control” of their child's behavior. The child has been consistently                                throwing “temper tantrums” at home and out in the community. The                                 “tantrums” have become so frequent and intense, that the child has                                no virtually no demands placed on him or her and is frequently left                                to do whatever he or she wants to do. The family has become more or                                less homebound for fear of experiencing the “tantrums” out in public                                places.

  3. Johnny is a six-year-old child with autism. His communication skills                                are significantly deficient and he demonstrates a wide variety of                                problem behaviors. Most concerning is the tendency for him to                                demonstrate self injurious behavior that has recently increased in                                frequency and intensity. An ER visit was necessitated by a recent                                incident of this behavior. Some of Johnny's more intense                                characteristics related to autism spectrum disorders includes                                repetitive and ritualistic behavior patterns and an apparent need to                                collect and acquire a variety of specific tangible items such as Hot                                Wheels cars and Legos. Johnny is generally only “well behaved” when                                access to these items are free and frequent.

  4. A 35-year-old resident in a group home for adults with developmental                                disabilities has been knocking out windows in the house over the                                past several months. He or she has required medical attention for                                injuries sustained by this behavior and placement at the group home                                is now in jeopardy. This group home has three other residents. All                                residents in this group home are expected to complete various tasks                                around the house, participate in social interaction activities, and                                work two days a week at a workshop. So far, the behaviors have only                                been reported at the group home.

Project Expectations:

  1. Utilize Examples 2 and 4 from Chapter 12 of your Ebook as models for                                your report; however, it is not necessary to structure them exactly                                as they are presented.

  2. At a minimum, your FBA Report must include the required components as                                reviewed at the beginning of chapter 12.

  3. For each of those components, you should include specific details as                                they would be related to the referral scenario you are addressing.                                Details would include descriptions of the assessment tools, forms,                                and procedures that would have been implemented.

  4. It is not necessary to report actual scores or responses of completed                                assessment forms and tools, but there should be in inclusion of some                                detailed information that could have been gained by utilizing such                                tools and procedures within the context of the case scenario you are                                working on. DO NOT simply list items.

  5. It is not necessary, nor appropriate, to include ALL of the                                assessment tools, forms, and procedures reviewed in the course. Be                                judicious in your choices and make good clinical decisions on what                                assessment procedures you are including.

  6. Develop hypotheses related to the function of the target behavior                                based on fictional specifics of the tools and procedures you have                                described in your report.

  7. All tools, forms, and procedures reviewed in Units 4–9 should be                                considered when developing the components to be included in your FBA                                Report, but, as stated above, not necessary to include all of                                them.

  8. It is expected that you will need to demonstrate “creativity” and/or                                 “dramatic license” when outlining the steps of the Functional                                Behavioral Assessment you are reporting on.
